David Hasselhoff Talks the Dangers of Fame in Killing Hasselhoff | Exclusive

4 September 2017 8:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The iconic David Hasselhoff is such a huge star that he was responsible for the Baywatch remake's box office success overseas, despite the movie being a critical and commercial flop in the U.S. And the fact that he only has a very minor cameo. That's some certified star power right there. Everybody loves The Hoff, a theme which is explored from a bizarre new angle in the comedy Killing Hasselhoff, which is available now on DVD and Digital HD formats. Ryan Downey recently sat down to chat with David Hasselhoff, getting his thoughts on this outrageous comedy that puts a target on The Hoff's back. He also learned quite a bit more about the man and his persona.

As we saw in the Killing Hasselhoff trailer that debuted in July, the story centers around a strange but lucrative game played by a group of well-off and affluent friends. Once a year, »

Exclusive Clip: Flula Borg Gives Life Advice to Ken Jeong in Killing Hasselhoff

28 August 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Homeless people are some of the most inciteful people, aren’t they?

From Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, Killing Hasselhoff is a hilarious and outrageous comedy starring Ken Jeong (The Hangover) and the Hoff (Baywatch), himself.

The movie follows a nightclub owner, Chris (Jeong) failing to pay back a loan shark and deciding the best way to make quick money is to bet in the “Who Will Die This Year” celebrity death pool. And he places his bets on David Hasselhoff. Aided by his friends, he will try everything to eliminate the Hoff. As it turns out, The Hoff is not an easy target.

The film also stars Jon Lovitz (The Ridiculous Six), Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) and Jim Jeffries (Tainted Lover). There are also plenty of celebrity cameos including Howie Mandel (America’s Got Talent), musician Kid Cudi, and Gena Lee Nolin (Baywatch).

Review: Killing Hasselhoff

27 August 2017 10:21 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Never being a fan of Knight Rider, I never really paid attention to David Hasselhoff, but gathered he was a good-looking actor with limited range and skills. Somewhere along the way, he continued getting work in projects both good and bad and built a fan base (I hear he’s really big in Germany). As a result, I missed when he crossed the cultural equator and became comfortable with the ridicule and self-parody. He’s accepted where he fits in pop culture and has gone on to embrace it as witnessed by his hysterical ‘70s-era music video found on the Blu-ray of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

And now, from Universal Home Entertainment, is Killing Hasselhoff, a direct-to-dvd release that finds him the target of an amateur assassin. This sloppy, slight comedy stars Ken Jeong as a nightclub owner in debt to loan shark Wasserstein (Will Sasso). Unable to »
